Convention: APC Waits For President Buhari Return

Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC will hold its National non-elective convention, when President Muhammadu Buhari returns.
The party’s National Vice Chairman South-south, Mr. Ntufam Eta, stated this in an interview with Voice of Nigeria.
He said the National Executive Committee and National Working Committee of the APC was working to make the non-elective convention happen soon.
In reaction to the just concluded convention of the main opposition party in the country, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, he said the APC was not moved.

He called on the PDP to strive to put its house in order to provide a strong opposition for the country.
“To say they had a convention, did you see what has become of the PDP? For people like us that are democrats I wish that the PDP can regenerate and reinvent itself so that they can play the role of viable opposition alternative for the people of Nigeria. It is our prayer that the PDP can put itself together and keep us on our toes and make us work perhaps better than we are doing now for the good of Nigeria,” he said.
Also reacting to the statement made by Nigeria’s former president, Goodluck Jonathan, where he said his administration “did well” in fighting corruption, Mr. Eta described it as an “assault on our sensibilities.”
“If he handled our economy as well as he said he did, I want him to tell us how many roads he built; how many hospitals functioned as hospitals; how many industries got built; how many jobs were created; how many megawatts of electricity were generated in his time; how much income he generated and he inherited; how much he left behind.
It is because of the benevolence and kindness of this administration that he is not in court,” Eta added.
